Can anyone with a 7.62 and a chrono help me out here? I am wanting to know what the velocities are for some 7.62x39 ammo out of the AK.

Anyone tried Tula, Ulvanyosk, Hornady Vmax etc. out of the AK and a chrono??

I'm wanting to set off tannerite with the AK-47 but the bullet needs to be going atleast 2k FPS, if I was shooting the target out at say 50 yards wonder if these rounds would give that 2k FPS?

Thanks! :)

I think 7.62 runs aroun 2300-2400 fps (without looking it up) and its not going to shed 300 fps in 50 yards. I would say your good to 100 yards easily.

+1. I have seen them from 2260 to 2670 with the average of 2360 at the muzzle. I have set off charges at 200m with 0 issues with x25 from a CZ 52....don't ask how many shots though to get on target...:oops:

Good to see you again. I havent been active here in some months. I guess I needed a short break.
